Meet the Director

Michelle Pelletier, executive director of the Long Island Science Center, grew up on the east end of Long Island, and returned after graduating from Cornell University. Her life on Long Island, from spending time on farms and the rich marine life has brought her to science. Through volunteering in India, Africa, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic, she gained valuable experiences in global society. Michelle has built an educational belief system based on the importance of showing how science is not only available to us all, but everyone is capable of doing science.
